Getting My Skinny On

So this past summer I was at the heaviest weight I have ever been. I felt gross. I felt disgusting. I didn't fit into any of my clothes. I ate everything; I mean everything. I was ready for a change, but if you know me then you know change scares the crap outta me! So I went to my doctor for help. She talked to me and put me on a weight loss program. She also gave me an appetite suppressant (when I needed the extra help and motivation...to kick start it, she said). I meet with her monthly for my weigh in and check up as well as a lesson in nutrition. I have learned portion control and have stopped eating just to eat and this is what happened...


...42 pounds less...

{so far!!}

I couldn't be happier...
This is the weight I was before I got preggy with Brendan...
11 years ago...
...I am now in the size that I wore when I got married...

Never in a million years did I think I could do this!


Here I am with my friend & trainer Tiff

...she is the one who helped me find my confidence...


...she is the one who helped me find my energy...


...she is the one who helped me find my sexy!!

Thanks Tiff!
